I Smell a Scam

So I bought my girlfriend a Dainese jacket for 320 (it's on the way)... Then I stumbled upon this site with the same jacket for 130 shipped. Now I saw that every Dainese jacket is listed for 130 (including the new leather Laguna seca mens jacket). Gut says too good to be true but my curiosity is hooked. Has someone here has dealt with them and had a good experience?

Place an order with PayPal... Then you should be covered. For what it's worth, I tried to add a jacket to my shopping cart and my work internet flagged the site as suspicious and wouldn't let me go any further. Not sure if that changes anything, but it sure doesn't help.

They are not hiding completely... but sounds too good to be true.

Let us know when/if you receive it.

Maybe their knock-offs?

Did a quick google search for the country. Came back with this...
(I still wouldn't trust it.)

East Timor, or Timor-Leste, a Southeast Asian nation occupying half the island of Timor, is ringed by coral reefs teeming with marine life. Landmarks in the capital, Dili, speak to the country's struggles for independence from Portugal and then Indonesia. The iconic 27m-tall Cristo Rei de Dili statue sits on a hilltop high over the city, with sweeping views of the surrounding bay.
